Our past couple of trips on the Karen Lynn have produced some truly world class fishing.
Stellwagen is producing great non stop action with trips enjoying multiple catches. Our charter returned from last weekend for some more action, as well as a charter with guys flying in from Alaska and Maryland.
The weather cooperated as we enjoyed great late season fishing. There is much life on the water right now, with the action starting only a few miles outside Gloucester harbor. Both days on the ride out, we came across small schools of 35″ to 50″ class tuna busting on the surface.
We had loads of 5″ to 7″ herring schools all over the place. I have never seen herring like this before right outside Gloucester harbor! Gannet’s dive bombing as far as the eye could see. The herring boat restrictions are starting to show a positive impact.
We enjoyed the show on the way out as we continued steaming to the bank. There are plenty of different size class fish still actively feeding on the bank. The fish we brought to the boat ranged from 55″ to the largest being a nice 70″ class fish tagged and released. The late season blue fin tuna fishing on Stellwagen is excellent right now, and I don’t see it slowing down any time soon. Hoping for a few more nice weather windows to get back out there.
Good Luck to all!
